VW Golf R 400 might be even more powerful

The final production version of the Volkswagen Golf R 400 could spawn even more power than originally announced.

Last month, during the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, we have seen a hot version of the Volkswagen Golf, in its newest generation (Mk7), as a one-off concept car, called the Golf R 400. This looked basically like the regular hatchback on steroids but the most important part was fitted onto its hood, as the engine was producing a total output of 400 HP (294 kW). According to the VW boss of Research and Development, Heinz Jakob Neusser, the final production version of the Golf R 400 “could make more than 400 horsepower”.

Neusser was very serious when he made this statement so expect even more than 400 HP (294 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque of the current one-off concept car. The vehicle will powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged upgraded four-cylinder engine, connected to a 6-speed DSG transmission, sending power to the 4MOTION all-wheel drive system. the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint will be made in supercar time, 3.9s, and the top speed will be electronically limited to 280 km/h (174 mph). More details on the production version are limited for the moment.
